Updated January 26: Bebemiqui is the winner! Congratulations and thanks to everyone who entered.
Maternity clothes were stuck in a time warp of fugliness until some brilliant fashion industry executive realized that being knocked up doesn’t mean you want to wear unflattering clothes. When I got pregnant with Miss C in 2001, Target, GAP, and Old Navy were all jumping on the hip maternity wear bandwagon. Thank God, because my super comfortable Liz Lange Target maternity black jersey pants saw me and my belly through just about every work day.
Ditto for baby clothing. Not every mom wants their little boy to wear puppy dog sunsuits or their little girl to wear pink gingham bloomers, although I have to say we are pretty partial to pink around here. Just not necessarily gingham.
Childish Clothing, favorited by celebrity moms like Heidi Klum and Mariska Hargitay, was founded by former MTV executive Skye Hoppus, wife of Blink 182 frontman Mark Hoppus, who saw a need for fashion-forward maternity and children’s clothing. They sent me this adorable onesie (size 3 to 6 months) for a giveaway…model baby not included.
